FastCompany argues that the economic impact of robocars will blow our minds.

When I think about the things that excite me about the prospect of robocars, not having to pay attention during transit is relatively low on my list. The more exciting aspects have to do with system-wide improvements. The above article focuses on the money saved from car accidents. That’s just the tip of the iceburg, though. The biggest thing, especially once these things can drive themselves without occupants, is that car ownership itself will become obsolete. The line between private car ownership and public transportation will become blurred in a way that everyone will benefit from.

It’s also pretty cool if it ends up in our revising our notions of “speed limits.”
